These boots are made for walking women

n West Linn company launches new collection with special promotion


When Wrayann Estey started Lume Footwear last year, the reception was outstanding.

The West Linn-based company put out a line of footwear for children that were waterproof, able to withstand chilling weather, great for walking and, most unique of all, featured a sleeve in which kids could place the various items they find as they go through childhood.

But Estey encountered one problem: Jealousy. Mothers liked Lume boots so much that they wanted pairs for themselves. Estey is now solving that dilemma.

“The mothers have spoken, we have listened,” Estey said.

To make sure her new collection starts with plenty of momentum, Estey is using a special promotion in which woman can pre-order their new boots on indiegogo.com. Customers can save money if they pre-order by Oct. 15.

Lume is all ready to go, with two styles — the Emily and the Sleeve — and four colors.

“Lume has changed its business model,” Estey said. “We’re now exclusively online and eliminated the middle man. We offer a high quality premium product without the premium price tag. We’re half the price of our competition.

“We’ve had a great response nationally and we expect great things on indiegogo.”

To order Lume’s women’s boots go to indiegogo.com and search LUME. Customers can also go to the website lumefootwear.com.
